Former MP Namal Rajapaksa has called for the International Cricket Council to look into the allegations of match fixing during the 2011 Cricket World Cup.

“I implore the International Cricket Council and the Hon. Min of Sports to immediately take action on these accusations & hold an impartial investigation on the matter, based on this alleged evidence,” Rajapaksa said in a tweet.

“Accusations such as these are very serious and tarnish the image of a sport that we all truly love,” he added.

Former Sports Minister Mahindananda Aluthgamage yesterday claimed that the 2011 Cricket World Cup final match between Sri Lanka and India was fixed, calling for an official probe into the alleged incident.

    How come people who were drowned in deep slumber suddenly wake up and add their voice? Is it because of Election time, or did they realize very late that they did not get the share of the loot? A cat has nine lives, and this matter surfaced after a lapse of 9 years. The cat is already dead.

    Sam Panditha Saturday, 20 June 2020 09:46 AM

    Why not investigate ALUTHGAMAGE the Sports Minister at the time, who was aware of such "match fixing" but did not investigate?

    clueless Saturday, 20 June 2020 11:00 AM

    Intention of his tweet to me is to clear the team and not in support of Newvillage.

    Mark Anandappa Saturday, 20 June 2020 11:14 AM

    Sanga being elected as the President of MCC rubbishes the former Ministers accusation.

    Geetanjali Mishra Saturday, 20 June 2020 07:18 PM

    Fail to understand , how the officials could fix the fate of the match! What's the point talking about it in 2020? Simple, just to tarnish the reputation of great players like Sanga,Jayawardena, Malinga , Dilshan who were highly respected in India and world.

    Aluthnamal Sunday, 21 June 2020 04:48 PM

    It is noticed that all the individuals who are calling for a probe are those who have allegations of fraud or corruption against them. Just see the irony !
